Thank you so much to Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for giving me a chance to read and review an e-ARC of Don’t Look Back (and thanks to NetGalley for making it happen). I’ve been reading so many action romances this year, so when I saw that this too was an action romance, I pounced on it! Don’t Look Back is the third book in the Texas Justice series and I haven’t read the first two books, so I don’t think it’s super necessary to read them in order.
Don’t Look Back 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
FBI agent Bree Ryan’s latest mission is personal. She’s posing as a waitress at the Black Diamond strip club, the same club where her estranged half sister worked until she turned up dead. When Bree’s undercover assignment is compromised, she turns to the only man she knows who can help her: Connor Pierce, a too-sexy-for-his-own-good, rule-breaking cop with a knack for solving cold cases.
When someone breaks into Bree’s apartment, Connor’s detective skills aren’t the only things that kick into overdrive. Although his job demands he remain detached, now he finds himself tempted not only by Bree’s beauty but also her intelligence and bravery. As the investigation-and their attraction-grows more intense, lives are in jeopardy, and Connor finds the most important rule he must break is his own. But can he put his heart on the line?
Overall, I thought the plot for Don’t Look Back was great- it moved pretty fast and always kept me on my toes. I liked Bree as a main character a lot. Connor was a fine love interest/secondary character. I also liked how there were two plots/crimes that they were working to solve- since they were kinda connected, you expected the second one to be solved when the first one was, but it wasn’t and I loved that. It made it so much more interesting and I kept being like what’s going to happen now? What is Bree going to do now? How is she going to get away? How is she going to really find out what happened to her sister??? The ending was so satisfying and I loved Bree and Connor for each other by the time the end came about. Overall, this was a great action romance and I highly recommend it! Don’t Look Back comes out on December 15th, so make sure you check it out then.
